I first heard about Reiki from a college prof who was talking about different healing modalities back when I was in massage school. It really stuck with me because a few years later, after graduating and practicing as an RMT, I took my first Reiki class and became attuned for the first time.
I loved it. I felt it. I vibed so high with it. It saved me countless times in countless ways, and it was meant to come into my life at the very right moment. I don’t remember how my Reiki master came to be my Reiki master, but she saw me through each of my levels and I am so very grateful for the kind, loving soul that she is.
I was starting my journey with Reiki as I was starting a relationship with a man that would end up being a big reason for the need for me to heal. I didn’t know it at the time (who ever does), but the universe certainly knew that I needed the strength of this beautiful spiritual practice to get through and then heal from that relationship.
Reiki is my way that I connect with my higher self (there are so many ways to connect to one’s higher self, this is just my way). I feel my energies, I feel where they’re stuck, (where I’m stuck). I’m guided by my intuition (my higher self) which I’ve learned to (and am still learning to) trust in.
With every level of Reiki, there is an attunement process. With each attunement that I went through, I felt like I started vibrating at a higher frequency…I felt it in my bones, in my every organ, in the blood running through my body. Every time I did a Reiki session, I felt it. When I make Reiki a regular part of my daily live, I feel that vibe even when I’m not doing Reiki.
I did not feel these higher vibrations always though. Since becoming a Reiki Master in 2006, my Reiki practice has had its ebbs and flows. Looking back on the past, the times where I turned away from my Reiki practice were the times where I felt most at conflict and in sorrow. It was also Reiki that helped me get back up from the remnants of the outcomes of these emotions.
With a regular daily practice that I now have, I feel a strength within me that will never die. I feel it in my heart, I feel it in my third eye, in my crown…that higher vibration. It’s beautiful and magical and I want to be out in nature all the time and I feel that that’s how life should be lived, in that higher vibration.
So, this has been my journey thus far with Reiki. A strange little first blog post, but that’s me and that’s ok. In the next few posts, I’ll talk more about what Reiki is and how it works.
I teach Reiki too, because wow, you’ve got to feel this!! So far just level 1 and 2, but within this first year of Spirit and Sole, I’ll be teaching level 3 and master teacher as well. If you’re interested in attending a workshop, let me know with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Much love, Natalie
